Entering on the main level, a flowing design leads to a comfortable living and dining area, utterly filled with light and gentle breezes provided by large windows and doors. At the very rear lies a vintage peninsula kitchen, providing the modern chef with ample space, generous storage and gas appliances.

From the main living area, a vast deck unfolds over the rear of the property offering a covered and private space to enjoy the leafy aspect.

This blank canvas would be perfect for an extension, addition of further outdoor entertaining areas or even a pool, subject to Council approval.
